CHFF: The Colts non-comeback comeback

Cold Hard Football Facts noticed that while it didn’t require a comeback, the Colts bounced back from their winless start to look less like the 1991 Colts and more like the 1986 Colts:

After Mora ripped through his “playoffs?!” quote, he finished by saying “I just hope we can win a game!” A decade later and with Christmas around the corner, Colts fans just hoped for one win this season. It finally came, 27-13 over enigma Tennessee, ending a 14-game losing streak that extends back to last season’s playoff loss. Just like in 1986, the Colts started 0-13, but won the 14th game of the season. They would finish 3-13. Dan Orlovsky finally got off the schneid with a win for the first time in his 19th career appearance (10th start).

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
